of education is look at our government more like a family. our government takes in about $2.2 trillion a year. it spends $3.8 trillion, and it has a $14.3 trillion deficit. let's just take all those zeros away and pretend that our government is a family. so this family earns $22,000 a year. it spends $38,000 a year, and it has a credit card bill of -- or a balance on its credit card of $143,000. >> so should the government manage its finances like most households do to get control of the debt problem? "reason" magazine thinks so but cnbc contributor jared bernstein says there's no way. jared, why not? does it oversimplify is it t? why wouldn't that work? >> yeah, i found that to be oversimplifying and misleading. well, first of all, families and the government are different in a very important and actually keynesian way. when families are tightening their belts because of recession, the government needs to loosen its belt with fiscal stimulus to offset the demand contraction, but it has to be temporary. it has to go back the other way around. when families are doing bert and loosening the bel
? they're the product, right? well, some count their free education worth about $50,000 these days is enough. but there's an ever-growing clamor of how to compensate the athletes. the question is how. even mark emmert the president of the ncaa is supportive. his point isn't to make it play for pay, it's to update a decades-old scholarship model out of date. most of these kids cannot even get side jobs for pocket money or do anything but go to class, practice, and travel. proponents say the dollar figure is enough to allow them to focus on sports and school while not allowing them to live a life different than the average student. even with that, football and basketball generate ridiculous revenue. the upcoming tv deal to televise the winner, $470 million for 12 years. some of that at some point has to trickle down to the student athlete. >> really interesting that it hasn't trickled down yet. >> not so far. it's always been i think they get $50 a month or something for milk money and that's basically it. >> who are you picking tonight, ty? >> my heart says notre dame on this. >> i'
three weeks since they lost 20 of their classmates and six educators, but thursday sandy hook elementary students were back in class. >> "watching them get off the bus, most of the kids were excited, they had seen friends, they hadn't see in awhile, they anxious to get into the hallways and meet up with the other kids, and you could see the teachers had the same response, they were quite excited to see the students." >> reporter: the site of the december shooting is still part of an ongoing investigation, so the former chalk hill middle school in nearby monroe was re- purposed, and renamed sandy hook. >> "a great deal of thought and effort and volunteer work to make this as seamless as possible." >> reporter: to give the students a sense of continuity, desks and other familiar objects were brought to their new school. a number of parents spent the day there, discussing security and other concerns with police and school officials. >> "it was like the first day of school, everybody, there were counselors, there were therapy dogs, all the parents, there was a little bit of anxiety but i thi
the cuts in education and investments and innovation which i think are a false economy because they do reduce the possibility for growth rather than increase it. so i don't hear -- none of us is saying we are not going to talk about spending cuts. >> typically they are indicating now that they still want larger than any ever debt limit increase. >> i think that is a complete manifestation of the philosophy that is at work on the republican side. if you do not believe in the public role, if you do not heed the call of president washington that a political party shouldn't be at war with our own government, then you would disagree with what the republicans are doing. every day if you see the ryan budget that they deemed passed yesterday, passed on the floor yesterday, it practically directs that all of the things the public role plays a part in clean air, clean water, public safety, public education, public transportation, public housing, public health, medicaid, social security. so if you think there should be more spending than reaching the debt limit, if you do that a couple of times,
and probably have become more educated and balanced in understanding how many people feel about the right to bear arms in this country and believe it is as core to them as freedom of speech or freedom of religion. i think the laws that are on the books now would not have kept someone like my father from having a gun. we have real issues on mental health that have to be addressed. we are not seeing money put into programs on the books. but i don't understand why anybody needs an assault weapon in this country. i hope that everybody will come to a table. otherwise people are going to go to their corners and fight not seeing what we need to see get done. >> when you see a movement to restrict gun ownership rights, the inevitable outcome is gun sales, magazine sales, ammo sales guthrough the roof. it is the polar opposite intention of what people on debbie's side. argument want to see. >> we saw this before president obam was elected, when hadt looked like he was going to be elected in 2008 and the time period between the inauguration, you see the big jump in gun sales. there has been some de

three months after the taliban shot her in the head after promoting education for girls. i think she should have won the nobel peace prize. good news, she's doing okay. billionaires like warren buffett, well, they are dumping shares of big name american consumer companies at an alarming rate. buffett's berkshire hathaway sold 21% of its shares in big names you know like johnson & johnson, procter & gamble, kraft. 70% of the u.s. economy depends on consumer spending and let's bring in charles payne. what do you make of an economy where buffett, very good investor, is selling consumer stocks. charles: it's an indictment, i guess, defacto, some sort of indictment against the overall economy and also, juxtapose that against the news coming into the week that he was buying this gigantic solar farm out in california. in other words, he knows he can rely on money, a lot of money consistently, at least for the next four years for the federal government, but he's not sure he can rely on the average consumer. maybe that's an indictment of all the taxes, indictment of all the regulations and th
